Hacettepe University Faculty of Medicine, Department of Endocrinology and Metabolic Diseases, Professor. Dr. Okan Bülent Yıldız said: “Hormones in our bodies cause both low and high levels of health problems. To get the hormones to the level we want, the minerals used in their production must be present. The amount we want. One of the most important minerals taken from outside is good. Iodine: The role of iodine in thyroid hormone production. However, during the epidemic we noticed an important problem that people started using trace elements uncontrollably to protect themselves from Kovid-19 infections. Iodine use also increased uncontrollably. Taking it does not protect us from Kovid-19 infection, it protects us from thyroid. As the disease progresses, it starts to come back. It can cause less function of thyroid gland, which we call hypothyroidism, by destroying it, “he said.
Concentrate to support products with algae kelp
Mention that algae and kelp auxiliary products are the top products with high iodine, Prof. Dr. Yıldız said: “During this time the use of high iodine solutions was also discussed. All of these things cause your thyroid gland to come in contact with more iodine than it should, which makes its function worse. We can say that iodine is found in seafood, milk and Dairy products. However, some drugs, especially those used in imaging techniques, are given intravenously, and KELP products, such as additives / supplements, may be a health risk rather than a benefit. ” He said.
“Too much vitamin D eliminates heart rhythm”
Professor Dr. Yıldız said, “Selenium is one of them. It plays a role in the normal functioning of thyroid hormone. However, excessive use of selenium also has a detrimental effect on the body. In epidemics, selenium was used excessively and unnecessarily. For example, Vitamin D. In fact, it is a hormone that acts like any other hormone in our body. Again, when trying to protect ourselves from infection during an epidemic, there was a hormone. Uncontrolled and high levels of vitamin D use. (Poison) is applied in the emergency department because it is taken in excess of what is needed. High levels of “Vitamin D” can increase the level of calcium in the blood. It can disrupt the functioning of many organs, especially the electrical conduction system of the heart. It can disrupt the rhythm of the heart, “he said.
Referring to a topic discussed by scientists at the European Endocrinology Congress, where scientific sessions were also discussed, the long-term effects of Covid-19 were discussed. Dr. Okan Bullet Ildiz concludes:
“In this sense, the pancreatic insulin-releasing cells, which we call beta cells, may be affected temporarily or permanently. Therefore, a group of patients with covid had a temporary increase in blood sugar. They were in the hospital, and in some patients it became permanent. Maybe, and these people were diabetic after Covid. There is long-term research in the world about this. We have seen both thyroid gland dysfunction and pancreatic dysfunction in humans who have Covid-19. Covid is very heavy, as Covid is very heavy. As an endocrinologist, we monitor and evaluate medium and long term health. The risk of patients with Covid-19 is high. “
